Build roads for reckless drivers...

or so says The Onion.

In truth, this may not be a bad idea so long as the reckless drivers pay for it through tolls, users fees and higher insurance premiums. I suppose that if the privatizers got their way and all roads were privately supplied, this would even be an efficient outcome of a Coasian bargain.

In the meantime, we'll have to put up with people who disregard the laws on the regular roads without any compensation.
